What you can expect
Your knowledgeable guide leads the way to the imposing Trakai Island Castle, a splendid 14th-century building on a small island in the middle of an idyllic lake. Admire the majestic silhouette of the castle's high, red-brick walls and slender towers reflected on the lake’s surface.
With convenient roundtrip transport, see the imposing Trakai Island Castle and Trakai Historical National Park. Situated 9 miles (15 km) from Vilnius, Trakai was declared a national park due to the beauty of its 200 lakes and dense fir and birch forests, as well as its historical importance. It was the seat of the Grand Dukedom of Lithuania and the second capital of the country in the Middle Ages.
After a short journey from Vilnius, explore the national park area with its stunning natural beauty and reach the magnificent medieval castle of Trakai by crossing a wooden walking bridge over the lake. The castle’s construction began at the end of the 14th century as an enlargement of the neighbouring Peninsula Castle, complete with its imposing walls, Donjon, Ducal Hall and defensive towers.
